  • People Love It. People Hate It. I Call It UNIQUE.
    As stated in the title, there are controversial feelings over this anime. Personally, I think that these feelings are fitting because this series is one of a kind. You have to be able to accept it to love it.

    For me, I loved many things about Angel Beats. I loved the characters, the setting, the music, the humor, the drama, and, oh, the emotion.....that was the best part of all. While ...

  • One of the best shows of all time
    This show seriously needs a sequel, of the afterlife of the afterlife. I know it's confusing. I mean it can have zoo much more potential. I wished at the time there were more characters or something to claw onto. In fact it's the one I watched after Clannad. It's kinda hard because there's all of these series, and in Japan they delve into different episodes or re-release new series of old ones. ...

    You'll laugh, you'll cry, and then sometime down the road you'll look back and say, "Ya know, that anime wasn't actually all that great."
    My opinion of this anime has changed a few times. The first time I saw it, I was completely astonished at how beautiful and tear-jerking it was, but then I thought about it some more and eventually I came to terms with its flaws and realized just how much was actually wrong with the anime.

    Story - 3.5 / 5
    Angel Beats is about a teenage boy named Yuzuru Otonashi who wakes up in front of ...

    feel bomb, you gon' cry
    needless to say i cried while laughing, then i proceeded to laugh while crying; as a generally calm person i don't cry too often, but i wept and made sounds i hadn't made since i was a child. I recommend this anime to any and all, but if your'e one to cry over spilled milk, than i suggest buying out Kleenex.

    Great Music, Great Story!
    This anime is a little gory for my normal tastes because in the battles they can't die...and so it makes some awkward moments and very funny. The music is excellent. I I could listen to the opening credits all day. It is an excellent anime that really pulls on your heart. The art style stands out to me as well. A must watch!

  • Amazing, yet too compressed.
    The original planned series would've been a masterpiece, a 26 episode epic, but executive producing issues limited it to a 13 episode series, while still amazing, not a masterpiece :(. The pacing is too rushed, ideas are explained without any rhyme or reason, character's back stories aren't well explained out of the main group of protagonists.Yuri feels kind of generic, but they pull her backstory ...

    Feels? I Don't See Any Feels
    The only reason I watched this show is because I was promised feels, and I quite enjoy intense, heart breaking feels. However, while still being a very good show, the feels really didn't come through to me, and that's all this review is really about. It is a good show, but I'm not elaborating on that. This review is only complaining about the lameness of the feels.
    The show pretty much made ...

    a hard one to judge indeed
    Pros:
    -Character interactions are well executed and fun to watch
    -despite it's dark lining, this series is actually very light hearted most of the time
    -interesting question in the show will actually leave you pondering to yourself Aristotle style for the next couple days after completion.
    -purgatory concept is played out well
    -Though mostly a light hearted series, it can and will drop the ...
